An English bigot has been convicted of hurling racist abuse at a police officer in Perth by calling him “Scottish” and “ginger”.
Zoe Tully admitted acting in a racially aggravated way by trying to cause alarm or distress to PC Scott Christie on March 25.
Tully, from the north-east of England, admitted making abusive and racist remarks to the officer while she was being arrested.
Depute fiscal Michael Sweeney told Perth Sheriff Court: “She shouts at one of the police officers, calling him a Scottish, ginger p****.”
Tully, 28 , of Pollard Terrace, South Shields, was placed under social work supervision for 12 months and ordered to undergo treatment for a drug problem.
